Howdy,

Brand new to this, do not even own a Bolt EV yet but am really looking to pick one up. Only problem is my first assignment is in Germany and I am unsure if the American Bolt EV will work over there, specifically

1. Worried about European 50 Hz as opposed to American 60 Hz for both charging at home and on the road, does the car/charger reconcile this (or is it even a big deal)
2. Europeans run on 220 V, American on 110 V, would that be a problem?
3. What are the requisite converters I would need to pick up to be able to charge on the road (i.e. American plugs to European sockets) and at home?

Thanks so much for your all's help!

I bought a 220 Chevy volt 50hz L2 unit for cheap and used that with my Ford C-Max energi. The volt and ampra are sold in Europe so you can get the chargers. Look on flea bay.
